Todd Palin speaks on Second Amendment

http://kaaltv.com/article/stories/S6...html?cat=10728

Todd Palin talks 2nd Amendment in Minn.

HERMANTOWN, Minn. (AP) - Saying the right to bear arms "isn't just another amendment," the husband of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin angled for the votes of Minnesota sportsmen Thursday and tried to stoke their support for U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman.
Todd Palin called Coleman "someone who has stood with hunters and fishermen and women, someone who knows the Second Amendment isn't just another amendment. It's a right to stand up for and protect."
Several hundred people attended the rally in the parking lot of a Gander Mountain outdoors store outside Duluth; many were clad in blaze orange or camouflage. Besides winning praise from Palin, Coleman accepted an endorsement from the National Rifle Association.
Wayne LaPierre, CEO and executive vice president of the NRA, called Coleman an ally of gun owners. Coleman said he was "proud to stand strong for those who stand for the Second Amendment."
Coleman's Democratic opponent, Al Franken, is also on record supporting the Second Amendment. "He believes all Minnesotans must be assured the right to own guns for collection, protection and sport," said Franken's spokeswoman, Colleen Murray.
While Coleman spoke longer, Palin was clearly the main draw for many in attendance.
"I think Todd's one of those people we'd meet for coffee in the morning, one of those people who'd sit in the church pew next to you," said Lowell Ruud of nearby Proctor, who wore a blaze orange hunting vest.
Palin was to campaign later Thursday in the northern Minnesota cities of Grand Rapids and Bemidji. Coleman was staying in Duluth, where he was to debate Franken and Independence Party candidate Dean Barkley on Thursday evening.
Several dozen supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama demonstrated across the street from Gander Mountain, many wearing blaze orange themselves and hoisting signs reading "Sportsmen for Obama" and similar messages.

"The Republicans have a whole bunch of sportsmen brainwashed into thinking if the Democrats get into power they're going to take their guns away," said Danny O'Neill of Duluth, who said he's a hunter and owns several guns. "They can have their guns. I have my guns. But let's keep it safe on the streets for our kids. Why does a hunter need to own an assault rifle?"

"Why does a hunter need to own an assault rifle?"

I don't own a sewing machine, probably never will, shouldn't we ban them?

It's not "Why does a hunter need to own an assault rifle?"
It's "What's a good way to protect your life and property?"
